Study at the School

Our mission: Engineering Better Health

Innovations in health technology have the potential to tackle the biggest healthcare challenges of our time.

The School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences is advancing healthcare engineering research, teaching, and entrepreneurship by bringing life-changing medical technologies to patients and clinicians faster.

We are driven by the ambition to improve the way we deliver healthcare through advanced engineering. The School trains the next generation of world-class biomedical engineers and prioritises collaboration between researchers, clinicians and industry.

Our students and researchers break down barriers between disciplines to deliver faster translation of research into the clinic. By being embedded within one of the UK's largest NHS Trusts, we can improve the quality of life for patients around the world.
